I was split in judging the atmosphere of this place. On the one hand, it was a nice, spacious restaurant that highlighted historical military artifacts. On the other hand, it was jam-packed with tourists who neither added nor detracted from my experience. The food was no better than a chain restaurant's, and the quality of the beer was not good. The only standout that I've had just recently was the Hefeweisse (A-). Service was friendly, but in short supply. In short, this establishment is another example of one which benefits from a slam-dunk location. If you want better beer, hit the Firewaters beer bar in the Tropicana Marketplace for a great selection of quality brews.

This is a sad, mostly empty cavernous bar that reminds me of the city it lives in- a reminder of better times. Well-decorated and shiny but dead in spirit.

Beer is not good. I can hear servers audibly complaining about each other. Bar is empty after work hours. I could imagine people came here once upon a time but I'm not sure there's any draw anymore

I saw the luke-warm reviews here but my wife and I were across the street at the AC Convention Center and I figured why not give them a shot for lunch. I'm the kind of guy who chooses a restaurant on their beer selection first, food second.

We sat at the bar and had a very nice bartender. The beer selection was ordinary. The obligatory "light" beer for the Coors crowd, a pale ale, Irish red (I guess a Killian clone), stout, a weiss, an IPA and two special brews. One a wee heavy, and a "Belgian strong".

Being a hop lover I opted for the IPA. Decent but nothing to write home about. Sufficiently bitter but lacked (at least to my liking) enough finishing hops to satisfy me. My wife who doesn't share my affinity for hops liked the wee heavy. I thought it was true to it's style. She liked the stout although I felt it was a bit thin. The Belgian strong was I suppose a dubbel. Dark, strong and probably one of their better attempts.

Food is pub fare. I won't say it sucked, but pretty close. At least what we had. I had a buffalo chicken salad for $15. It came drenched, I mean dripping in bleu cheese dressing. The chicken was pretty tasty but that much bleu cheese ruined it for me. The wife had a turkey burger she described as mediocre.

I wouldn't recommend this place although the ambiance was rather nice. If you want good beer you'll go elsewhere.

F- Food was ok we just order wings and they can out luke warm, over bread , and drench in hot sauce. Had better during another visit.

Went here for my buddies bachelor party and my father told me that he and I have been there before but I never really remembered it.

We went there on a Saturday evening so the place was totally packed. Had live entertainment which was nice to listen to. The beer sampler was pretty good I really enjoyed the IPA.

I ordered the chicken tenders and they just give you 5 tenders w no fries for 9 bucks. The one guy got a philly cheese and it was loaded up. So just guessing what you order varies portion size.

Overall it was a really cool place and would like to go back on a week day and see if I would enjoy it with less of a crowd.

I almost skipped this place during my trip to ac due to some of the reviews i read on here. Sure glad I took the chance. first off a convention was in town and the place was absolutely packed, but we were seated within minutes. They even made a spot for our stroller to fit by the table. All the workers we came in contact with were very friendly, I ordered the all american ipa it was served quickly and ice cold. One of the most enjoyable brews ive had in a long while. The food was phenomenal ,we got some burgers they were served quickly,perfectly cooked and tasted delicious. worth every penny, and reasonably priced for atlantic city. got a growler of the ipa to take back to the room with us and enjoyed it in the jacuzzi. i got two brews, two pint glasses to take home ,two awesome burgers, a growler full of ipa and it cost me less than 60 bucks.

A bit out of the way, but a nice little walk from the boardwalk. Very clean and spacious inside and out. I was noticing all the military stuff and came to find out the the owner with in the service and did this after the fact. I really enjoyed the decor, especially the tanks above the bar. The bartender was very friendly, attentive, and knew her stuff. Had spinach and crab dip, a bit rich and filling, but really nice. The food all looked good, but a bit pricy, whereas the beer was decently priced. A cool place, and quite enjoyable.

As the only brewery/brewpub in the area for many miles, it would be nice if the Tun Tavern stepped up their game, but they seem pretty complacent. Atmosphere is pretty general and sportsbar-ish. They have a decent sized bar and a good amount of tables. The bartenders were friendly though maybe a bit distant. Their beer is all house-brewed, with a general spread of different styles. The beers are decent, but none are really distinctive or great. The food is decent...standard comfort foods mostly. Prices are a bit steep for what you get. You might be better off going to the casino for free drinks, and at least a chance to get your money back.

Save your receipt for free parking in the adjacent lot.

It may be an oxymoron, but this is definately a commercial brewpub aimed at the masses... The place has a natural buzz about it being situated so close to all the casinos, but other than that the decor and atmosphere are rather run of the mill though the open design is a definite plus... Service was textbook average... Six inhouse offerings which run the gamete from light lager to stout... The food was typical bar far with an even mix between salads / sandwiches and entrees... The prices seemed a bit high, but I guess not so much my tourist destination standards... Worth a vist if you're in the area, but not a destination in and of itself...
